Michelin starred chef and proud Brummie Glynn Purnell has been a staunch supporter of Cure Leukaemia for a number of years. Glynn, now a Trustee of Cure Leukaemia, was instrumental in helping recruit over 450 runners for the BUPA Great Birmingham Run 2013 – raising over £125,000.

As well as this, Glynn’s cooking skills have been influential in bringing ‘Glynn Purnell’s Friday Night Kitchen’ to Birmingham – an event that returns again on Friday 6th October – where Glynn show cooks on stage, along with celebrity friends, in front an audience of over 700 at the Vox in Birmingham!

Glynn Purnell said,

“I was honoured to have been invited to further support the charity by becoming a Trustee in 2014 after two years as a Patron.

“Professor Charlie Craddock CBE and his team at the Centre for Clinical Haematology, right here in Birmingham provide ground-breaking research and treatment that is made possible through Cure Leukaemia. I’m a very proud Brummie and we, as a city, should be equally proud that Birmingham has a genuine opportunity to find a cure for this terrible disease.”
